Jerry Vergilis has enjoyed a career as a trial attorney for more than 40 years. His trial experience has taken him into all courts, criminal and civil, State and Federal. His early trial experience was gained as a part-time deputy Public Defender for Dutchess County where he defended the full range of criminal cases from misdemeanor to felony murder. He then changed his focus to civil cases with an emphasis on personal injury law. During the past 25 years Jerry has successfully prosecuted all types of personal injury cases and helped hundreds of injured victims recover the compensation they deserved.

Jerry is a graduate of Kings College in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. He earned his law degree at St. John’s University in New York in 1971 and then continued his legal education, while practicing, to receive a Masters Degree (LLM in Taxation) from New York University in 1980.

Jerry is proud to be part of the Rutberg Breslow Personal Injury Law firm, a team of lawyers that include the “best trial attorneys in the Hudson Valley.” He speaks from experience when he says, “It’s easy to claim or advertise that you are a personal injury attorney. I know many who do just that. However, most of those attorneys have had little, if any, actual personal injury trial experience. That leaves the client injured a second time. Don’t be deceived by such advertising. Ask the attorney how many cases like yours they’ve actually tried before a jury. Trial experience makes all the difference; there is no substitute.”
